Matrix by Hunter Seamons using Final Cut Pro (SHN & FLAC>AIFF>Final Cut>WAV>FLAC)
June 10, 2008

Notes:

1) While not the most ideal AUD on its own, Glassberg's source complemented the SBD best (consistent with the 05-08-81 matrix), and Eaton's AUD is used only for patches in the SBD. In these cases, only Eaton's source plays.

2) There was more tape hiss in the SBD source, it seems, than the previous night, especially during the first two minutes of Half-Step.

3) After the cut in the SBD during Eyes, the overall quality of the SBD is slightly diminished. One glaring difference is that not all of the drum pieces are as fully present. I noticed the high-hat (or one of them) is not present in the SBD any more, but is very audible in the AUD, so the AUD helps fill all instrumentation that is lacking in the SBD. Weird stuff.

4) As always - enjoy!

Subject: Love this show
So glad I came across this. I have an old cassette of this show, but the quality here is obviously much better. I was there and still love the beginning of the second set through Eyes. That Eyes has a different "swing" to it, if you will. Thanks so much for sharing!
